New Ownership with Somera Road
Somera Road, Inc.
Somera Road, Inc. is a New York-based Commercial Real Estate investment platform driven by its partners’ passion for revitalizing the urban cores of America’s secondary and tertiary cities. Somera takes an entrepreneurial and methodical approach to identifying value-add and opportunistic real estate that caters to the Millennial workforce and a modern vision of urban America.
Somera sources both equity and debt investments through non-traditional and off-market transactions, and generates returns through capital injection, strategic re-positioning and best-in-class management. Our disciplined approach means we only buy assets in markets and neighborhoods that we understand, and we generate investment returns through an aggressive, strategic, but most importantly, a hands-on approach. Over the course of the last cycle, Somera’s principals lead the acquisition and repositioning of over $500 million of real estate, across a variety of asset classes, in over two dozen geographic markets.
With a focus on maximizing risk adjusted returns, and an underlying commitment to preservation of principal, Somera capitalizes on market inefficiencies and over-leveraged investments. Besides traditional real estate, our team has experience structuring and acquiring Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (“CMBS”), non-performing loans, REO assets, B-Notes, Mezzanine Loans, and distressed JV-equity positions.
Somera targets cities with a trajectory that our team believes in, and focuses on assets that are ripe for recovery. In addition to delivering the necessary property-level investment and repositioning, our boots-on-the-ground approach means we work directly with local policy makers, city planners, and real estate professionals to revitalize assets at the macro level. We aim to be thoughtful, nimble, responsive and responsible in our interactions with all of our counterparties. We assure that in every transaction we take an aggressive approach, are well-capitalized, and true to our word.
Our market-specific relationships and unique access to non-traditional opportunities – combined with our experience, reputation, and discipline – position Somera as a leading middle market real estate investment platform.
Somera continually adds to its growing network of investors, lenders, brokers and other real estate professionals organically, through successful partnerships and referrals.
Somera prides itself on being responsive, attentive, and reliable in regards to all investor relations.
With its large pipeline of potential investments, Somera’s detail oriented underwriting, market-specific research and understanding, and hands-on approach are critical for mitigating risk or over extension.
